That's what I am thinking but a guy at Quadratec said it will not work with sliders, but everything else works

Just looked them up online and apparently the uppers won't work with the OE hardtop either, so IDK maybe they are shaped differently at the top than a normal door.

My sliders work. They were a little snug in the top right corner, I took the top off and put a new seal on it, problem solved.

I'd contact Keystone directly. Keystone took over the Bestop molds and must have changed something with the opening shape. The OEM door surround had the same shape as the hardtop. The NX door surround is the same shape as the OEM hardtop.

As long as it uses the factory door surrounds I don't see any reason as to why it wouldn't work..
